Challenge #70 January 2013 "not the rule of thirds"
« on: January 01, 2013, 10:25:29 AM »

Now Open, challenge #70. The first Challenge for 2013 is 'Not the rule of thirds'

Whether it is a rule or a guideline we have all read about it and some of the newer SLT's even put in the grid lines for us to ignore :grin:

So the challenge for January 2013 is "not the rule of thirds"

The usual rules apply:

A maximum of 4 entries per forum member are allowed and should be posted in this thread.

Maximum image size is 800 pixels on the longer side, and 200 KB in size - entries larger than this will not be considered for shortlisting (contributors may be asked to repost).

Entries close at 10 pm pm Australian Eastern Summer time on , January 31st 2013

Including EXIF info (shutter speed, aperture, focal length, camera model, lens, etc) is not mandatory, but is encouraged and welcomed.

Please note the standard challenge rules and posting guidelines.

Please remember there can be no comments on people's submissions for the challenges (to keep the voting fair). Comments on submissions will be deleted without discussion.

We have seen a number of new members sign up in the last month.  What better way to hit the forum with a splash than show us 4 of your best non conforming shots...

No examples from me to start with.... let's see what you can come up with....   john
